Introduction to Economic Theory and Policy

Jamee K. Moudud
Date added:

This yearlong lecture will, broadly speaking, cover introductory microeconomics and macroeconomics from a wide range of theoretical perspectives, including neoclassical, Post Keynesian, Marxian, feminist, and institutional political economy perspectives. The objective of the course is to enable you to understand the more “technical aspects” of economics (e.g. usage of supply/demand analysis within and outside neoclassical economics) as well as some economic history and the history of economic thought. The theoretical issues will be applied to contemporary policy debates such as the Green New Deal, inequality, healthcare, and international trade.
